New Breed Fiona Jopp, a full-time member of the Sydney Dance Company since 2013, her company peer Bernhard Knauer, and independent artists Daniel Riley and Kristina Chan will premiere new works as part of New Breed, a talent-seeding threeyear partnership between SDC and Carriageworks that offers four hand-picked aspiring Australian choreographers the opportunity to create new works made on the company’s dancers. They are then professionally produced and staged. Rafael Bonachela, the SDC’s artistic director, can already see the fruits of the program, with Gabrielle Nankervis’s smash hit Wildebeest, created for New Breed’s inaugural season, to be part of SDC’s 2016 season. He’s eager to see what the new crop of dancemakers will come up with this year. “For an up-andcoming choreographer to be awarded a commission is a rare and fantastic opportunity,” Bonachela says. “As far as I know, this is a unique opportunity in Australia.” Carriageworks, 245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh. Tonight, 2pm and 8pm; tomorrow, 5pm. Tickets: $35.
